Have a Spook-tacular Family Time at The Beach This Halloween
- Halloween Parade to make its way from The Beach to Bluewaters every evening from 31 October to 2 November 2019
- Glitter face painting and pumpkin decoration workshops for kids
- Free waffles for children at Eggspectation
- Scary movies for children and a Stephen King Horror Movie Marathon for adults at Roxy Cinemas
Keep your fangs on and expect a thrilling Halloween as you head down to The Beach for a spooky time of family fun. The laid-back destination by Meraas will get a fang-tastic transformation between 31 October and 2 November 2019 as the weather gets cooler.
Watch out for grinning skeletons and dusty cobwebs with spiders lurking as you take your festive snaps at the themed photo booths at The Beach – they may come in handy for proof of ghosts later. Participate in the parade ending at Bluewaters and let your little monsters in on a world of fun as they decorate pumpkins and have their faces painted – all absolutely free.
Dress your kids up in the scariest costumes and let them apply the finishing touches at the glitter face painting workshop, where they can choose their favourite vampire, ghost and zombie looks in celebration of the Halloween spirit.
When you’re all set costume-wise, it’s time to let your little ones dig into some paints, gemstones, glitter and unleash their creative madness upon unsuspecting pumpkins at the Pumpkin Decoration Workshops on Friday.
This Halloween, you can also take your pick of tricks and treats as Roxy Cinemas promises chills with its terrific Halloween offers. As part of the ‘Little Roxy’ package, kids can scream away during the screening of those classic animated scary movies - The Addams Family and Salma’s Big Wish - munch on popcorn and enjoy an exclusive Halloween-themed meal – all for AED99 – over the three-day festival.
And what would Halloween be without a nail-biting movie marathon? Adults can opt for a gripping selection of back-to-back movies based on Stephen’s King novels – It, It Chapter Two and Pet Sematary – all for AED115 as part of the ‘Movie Marathon’ package.
When you’ve had your fill of chills, take your little ones for delicious free waffles exclusively served to kids aged 12 years and under at Eggspectation. And if that doesn’t give them enough of a sugar rush, grab a spooky shake from Catch22 or watch the live caramel-making show at Fuzziwig’s Candy Factory.
